In COLLABORATION with Crafters Companion.
You may well already know this, but I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to fabric. I have a beautiful glass antique cabinet in my study, rammed full of the most beautiful fabrics. Up until recently I was happy to just have them there. Just in case of crafting. But this year, I am all about stash busting. Which is why the quilt for kindness project appeals to me.
Sew Inspired, are running a four-series long Quilt-along where readers will be taught how to make a complete quilt throughout the year, as well as free tutorials through our Facebook page. So it’s perfect for anyone who has sewn a bit before but never quilted. Just like me!
Their aim is two-fold; firstly to be an educational piece for readers who are new to quilting, to inspire them to have a go, but also to encourage readers to donate their finished quilt to a really worthwhile cause Project Linus UK . I had never heard of the cause before, but after having a read. I was even more into the idea of turning my fabric stash into a quilt for Kindness.
What is project Linus UK?
Project Linus UK is a volunteer organisation and they have a large network of volunteers across the UK who donate their time and skills to create beautiful blankets and quilts. The aim is to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted blankets, and give volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community.
